    Cons: Another horrible Fuji lens hood, all plastic and scrapes jarringly going on and coming off. No focus limiter. No tripod collar or provision made to use one - hangs front-heavy and uncomfortable off my xe2s when tripod mounted; Not ideal. Auto focus is quite fast, but noisy. Image Stabiliser easily switched off accidentally. This is a slow lens and not compatible with Fujis teleconvertors, although optically you’d definitely get away with using one.

    Pros: Small and light for a lens of this type. Build is very solid and I’ve found the lens dependable. Image Stabiliser is very good indeed - 1/10 sec hand-held, indoors, at 200mm and still an impressive number of sharp frames! Image quality is a revelation after a Canon 70-200mm f4 IS usm. Very sharp, high-resolution results. Auto focus is reasonably fast, but perhaps more importantly very accurate. Continuous autofocus is unusable, however and if an instant lock is important to you then it is probably best to look elsewhere - this lens is more suited to a more sedate style of photography. Even at the long end the results are impressive; In fact, I think the lens is under-priced. I use it constantly, and even now it is capable of surprising me with exceptionally crisp, clear results. If you want this type of lens and can’t stretch to the 50-140mm it’s really your only choice, and as a long time Canon user (L -Series) I’ve never seen a Canon lens come anywhere near this. One other thing: this lens isn’t weather sealed, but I have been caught out in torrential downpours more times than I can count and despite the lens (and camera) being absolutely soaked everything still works perfectly. I have a great fondness for equipment that keeps going no matter what.

    Summary: A better lens than you’d expect for the money. Weaker at 200mm, but not by much; More than usable throughout it’s range and something of a bargain.

    Cons: Not very bright, but stabilizer helps.

    Pros: Compact, lightweight. Excellent optical quality from 55mm to 135mm, good quality at 200mm.

    Summary: An excellent lent, strongly recommended.
